    Hello We rescued a purebred white with tan Akita a couple of years ago. She is now healthy, active, disciplined, and wonderful. Unfortunately, I need to move to another state to take care of family. So I can't take her with me. Since we rescued her, she has been in a Adult only home...I am not sure how she would react with children. Please contact me before I have to take her to the pound in a couple of weeks. Thanks

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    7 year old female spayed Akita that I adopted from a local humane society about 4 years ago here in Ohio. She is up to date on vaccines and heartworm testing until November. Has been on heartworm/parasite prevention continuously. Last year had full panel blood work, including a thyroid level and all was normal. She is great with kids and elderly, very loving and gentle. She does well with small dogs but not large dogs, needs a slow introduction and someone with knowledge on behavior if going somewhere with large dogs

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    This mom and her half grown male pup were found at our work. Not sure if they were dumped off or just running the neighborhood. They have not been claimed and my co-worker cannot keep them much longer.They are both very sweet. seem to be house trained and the Mom knows some basic commands. We would love to find them a home together if possible. They were kept from the SPCA and we hope to find a forever home, foster or no kill shelter.

Akita Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Winslow is a big boy looking for a place to rest his head. He was adopted 4 years ago and recently came into the shelter as a stray. Sadly his family could not be reached and they never came looking for him. He is a laid back boy who walks great on a leash. Although he seems fine with kids, because of his size he may be best with older children.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Ohio
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
